    "He suggested to go see a movie."

    Does this sentence mean:
    1-He suggested that he go see a movie (while we were doing our shopping).
    2-He suggested that we go see a movie.
    3-He suggested that the person(s) he was talking to go see a movie.
    4-Could mean any of the above.

    I wouldn't use it. I'd use a gerund or 'that'.
